i would like to understand what is a difference between parallel and orthogonal projection?let us consider following picture
we have two non othogonal basis and vector A with coordinates($7$,$2$),i would like to find parallel projection of this vector to these basis,i am studying Covariant and Contrivant components,so i would like to understand how to find parallel projection and also orthogonal projection?according to wikipedia,Orthogonal projection is defined by
what about parallel projection?please help me
In geometric terms …
In a parallel projection, points are projected (onto some plane) in a direction that is parallel to some fixed given vector.
In an orthogonal projection, points are projected (onto some plane) in a direction that is normal to the plane.
So, all orthogonal projections are parallel projections, but not vice versa. A parallel projection that is not an orthogonal projection is called an “oblique” projection.
This could all be translated into the language of linear algebra, I suppose, but I don’t think that would make it any clearer.
